Exploring the Interplay Between Inflation, Rate Growth, Demand and Occupancy in Senior Housing

By: Beth Mace and Omar Zahraoui  |  March 09, 2023

 An In-Depth Analysis of NIC MAP Vision Actual Rates Data Executive Summary  Through this in-depth analysis, we hope to shine a spotlight on the relationship between inflation, the pace of growth seen in-place actual rates, demand and occupancy. Actual in-place rates refer to effective rates or the rates that are “actually being paid” to live in senior housing. This is often not the same as the asking or listing rate that may be advertised or listed in a brochure.

Active Adult Inventory and Penetration Rates

By: Caroline Clapp  |  February 28, 2023

Active adult rental properties serve older Americans who wish to live in a multifamily setting with other residents who generally are more independent and active than the residents in today’s senior housing offerings. NIC MAP Vision recently released inventory data for active adult  for the fourth quarter of 2022. The analysis presented in this blog post aggregates the inventory and demographics of these active adult communities by market; calculates penetration rates within each market; and identifies where the largest concentration of inventory is located. Note that this analysis simply evaluates the supply side of the active adult market given the availability of inventory data. NIC MAP Vision is scheduled to release performance data such as occupancy and rents later in 2023, which should provide further insight into active adult demand.
